Delys has come up with a gorgeous colour challenge for us, at Just Add Ink this week.  Take a look:

I've deviated a little from my usual "card" offering, and have a candle, decorated for Christmas, to share with you.
Stamps: Merry Little Christmas
Card: Sahara Sand Core'dinations, Coastal Cabana Core'dinations, Very Vanilla
DSP: Raspberry Ripple Patterns Designer Series Paper (retired)
Ink: Raspberry Ripple, Coastal Cabana and Sahara Sand stampin' pads
Other: Chalk Talk framelits, Stylish Stripes embossing folder, sanding block, Scallop Trim border punch, paper snips, sponge dauber, Raspberry Ripple stitched satin ribbon, Antique Brad, Basic Pearls, sticky strip, glue dots
This colour combination has been used beautifully, and so creatively, by the rest of the Design Team over at Just Add Ink .... make sure you check out the samples.  We hope you'll play along with us!


  1. The effect of the stylish stripes embossing Christine looks so visual and textural wrapped around the candle. Love that little touch of cabana in the sentiment too! xxx

  2. What a great idea. I really love the striped embossing and the sentiment stamp, both of which I have but I'm yet to use!

  3. Beautiful decoration of your candle, Christine. Unusual "Christmas" colours, but they look good!

  4. Such a cute idea Christine! The layers of embossing,border and DSP are such a lovely use of the colours. It would make a lovely gift idea too! xxx

  5. This is sooo lovely! What a fab idea for some Christmas presents :)

  6. This is gorgeous Christine! Love how you've used these colours for your Chrissy candle! So many gorgeous details - it would make for a lovely pressie (especially if you get me in secret santa this year! lol)
